Changing A Child Support Or Divorce Arrangement
If a change needs to be made after a final divorce decree, you can petition the court to modify the final judgment. The modification process can allow for changes in situations such as custody, visitation and child support. Though the law allows for modifications, such an action requires a careful analysis of the changes, preparation of documents and evidence, and proper court pleadings. This is where an experienced Birmingham law firm can help you succeed.

Whether you need to increase the amount of child support that you receive or if your circumstances have changed and you need to pay to modify your current payment, we can help you petition the court for a modification. After a final judgment, to petition to modify begins a new case, and we represent you during the entire case.
Can I Get A Modification For Child Support?
There are many reasons for a child support modification, including:
- Change of custody
- Change in income
- Medical emergency and health
- Loss of employment
- Change in child’s needs
- Changes in circumstances
In the state of Alabama, the Department of Human Resources (DHR) may assist parties in collecting past-due child support and modifications. If DHR has filed a contempt action against you, we will represent you, and answer the summons and file counterclaims for you when appropriate. We can assist you in resolving arrearages, becoming current in child support, and requesting modifications in future child support payments as necessary.
